1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Corvette C6.R Revving & Engine Sound
This is a promo C6.R that the GM folks put on display at Lime Rock Park,
July 24, 2010, for the Northeast Grand Prix. It's identical to the #3 car
that would be on the track in just a couple hours. One of the staffers got
in and fired up the engine for us. Man, that sound is unbelievable! Best
engine sound in the ALMS, bar none!

Le Mans 88 Mulsanne
Back in the days when the Mulsanne straight was straight,you could watch
from beside the bar.It got a lot more crowded later in the day.The
electronic signature of some of the cars seems to have been every bit as
loud as their sound to judge from the way the videocamera of the day throws
a wobbly when they pass.At 0:52 a car passes,14 seconds later you can still
hear it when(@ 230mph)the car is 0.9 of a mile away.But as the sound takes
4 seconds to reach the camera from that distance, the car was only 0.64 of
amile away when it went out of ear shot.(very
